RCB’s new recruit Azharuddeen effects an awesome run-out in Kerala T20

Royal Challengers Bangalore’s new signing Mohammed Azharuddeen hogged the limelight for his fantastic contribution in a local T20 tournament in Kerala. The wicketkeeper-batsman made his presence count on the pitch with the bat and behind the stumps as well.



Representing KCA Eagles in the Kerala T20 tournament, he made a fantastic impact with the willow scoring as many as 69 runs off 43 balls against KCA Tuskers. His sensational knock helped KCA Eagles post 167 on the scoreboard.

In reply, KCA Eagles restricted the opposition to 124/8 and won the game by 43 runs. During the second innings, Azharuddeen made a great impact with the gloves.

The wicketkeeper effected a brilliant run-out to dismiss Sreenath. The incident happened during the 12th over of KCA Tuskers’ innings when Sreenath hit the ball straight to the fielder and tried to steal a single.

Without even responding to his partner, he straight away ran and covered almost half the pitch and while he learnt that his partner didn’t run, he was sent back to the striker’s end.

In the process, Azharuddeen effected an awesome run-out and words are really not enough to describe this sort of stumping. It was so good.
